      Tuesday, August 19, 2008. Near 10am this morning there were three
      Cattle Egrets in the harvested rice fields on Reclamation Rd. near
      Upper Lake. The rice check where they were landed was nearly dry, just
      some isolated puddles in the harvester tracks. Also landed in the same
      check near the center of the fields were several Great Egrets, Snowy
      Egrets and one White-faced Ibis. I had a five minute view of the
      Cattle Egrets, both landed and in flight. Jerry White was able to
      relocate the Cattle Egrets later and he also had views of the birds
      landed and in flight. He informed me that this is the third record for
      the species in Lake County. All three records have been in the
      Reclamation area east of Upper Lake.
      To get to the location from downtown Upper Lake, drive east on Hwy 20
      several miles to Reclamation Rd., or the next road which is
      Recalamation Cutoff, and turn right into the Reclamation area. Follow
      either road to the rice fields. The only public roads are along the
      eastern and northern edges of the fields. Scan the rice fields for the
      egrets or watch for them in flight.
